Brooke Hunter was born in Kansas City, MO and moved to Chicago when she was 15 years old. Her family are avid sailors, so she spent many summers as a “harbor rat” at Belmont Harbor in Chicago. After graduating high school, Brooke attended Columbia College, which is where she landed her very first radio job. Brooke ended up getting her big break at Q101 in the early 90’s during the height of grunge’s popularity. Brooke has also worked at WTMX, 94.7, WCKG and WLIT. Brooke is a single mom of a 16 (going on 26) son. Her days are spent playing chauffeur to her son and his friends, cheering him on at his bowling league matches, and taking care of her spoiled animals. She has 2 chihuahuas, Pearl and Luna, and 2 cats, Oscar & Smudge (can you tell that Brooke is a huge animal lover?).
